3 Reasons Why I Homebrew

  I avoided becoming a homebrewer for a long time mostly out of the fact that I really didn’t need another hobby. That and the thought of exploding bottles, high cost of entry, and 5 gallons of mediocre beer sitting around wasn’t the most appealing.

5 Unforgettable Beer & Cheese Pairings

  Cheese is one of my favorite foods. It’s complex, beautiful and sometimes downright weird. Anytime I go into a grocery store I find myself drawn as if by a magnet to the cheese counter where I hover for half an hour googly-eyed and nearly drooling on the glass. I’m pretty much always down to eat cheese, but sometimes its strong flavors and fatty, mouth-coating qualities can leave the palate…

Drink Beer, Raise Money for the McKenzie River

  It’s no secret that you can’t have great beer without great water. This is one of the many reasons our founders decided to base Ninkasi in Oregon’s Willamette Valley (Eugene, specifically) with access to fantastic resources like regional malt and hops and yes, access to one of the most pristine water sources in the United States: the McKenzie River. Announcing Kegs for…
